Arkansas River Tailwater - below Pueblo Reservoir

Tip of the week 

Typical tailwater nymphing rigs apply here as well. However, some fish like to cruise the film in search of trapped emergers, so a greased leader systems also pays dividends. Low flows now tend to congregate larger fish into the rock formations.

Seven-day forecast 

Flows should be stabilizing now. Should be better as fall comes on. Dry fly fishing not quite there yet but sky is bright, so look for a cloudy day
